Arlington Heritage Alliance Announces 2008 List of Most Endangered Historic Places

The small-scale character of Arlington County, Virginia—specifically its modest houses and shopping centers—is disappearing in the face of rapid development, according to the Arlington Heritage Alliance’s 2008 list of the most endangered historic places in Arlington. Development also threatens the County’s little-known Civil War resources, the group reports.  

Modeled after the National Trust for Historic Preservation’s “11 Most Endangered Historic Places” list, this eighth-annual local list includes specific properties and places—such as the Lee Gardens Shopping Center, the Veitch-Thomas House, and the Clarendon Commercial District—as well as the more general categories of Civil War Earthworks and Trenches and Small Arlington Houses.  

“Arlington remains a popular place to live and work and is undergoing rapid change,” says AHA Chair Kathryn Smith. “As a result, some of our lesser-known historic resources are now at risk—small houses, one- and two-story shopping centers, and our hidden Civil War trenches. We are pleased, however, that the County is moving forward with a Historic Resources Inventory and look forward to working with County staff and other Arlingtonians to protect these vital places.”  

AHA also has included several places on its annual Watch List—the Krowne Lustron House, Neighborhood Branch Libraries, the Tomb of the Unknowns, the Wilson School, Crystal City Industrial Buildings, and, last but certainly not least, the Weenie Beenie. Finally, the report also mentions two places that have been demolished: Parkland Gardens Apartments and the Ashton Heights Women’s Club.
